Book Description

13 Sep 2012 The Concrete Grove Trilogy
The ''Northumbrian Poltergeist,'' was an infamous case from the 1970s: twins haunted by a spirit they nicknamed Captain Clickety. The media of the time were split between derision and hysteria. As Ben teases out the supressed details of the story, he finds himself drawn to a woman whose young daughter went missing years ago during a spate of child abductions. He also finds himself investigated by a local policeman, whose private life seems tied up with events in the grove, and harassed by the father of the missing child. Then the scarecrows appear, their heads plastered with photographs of the long-missing and the dead. Hummingbirds flock to certain areas of the estate, as if awaiting the arrival of something... a door has been opened and a presence is about to step through. It is up to Ben to put the ghosts to rest and unravel fact from fiction. He is about to discover that the story he seeks is his own, and only he can plot the ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Concrete Grove Trilogy, a look back... 6 Sep 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It would perhaps be more accurate to call this 'The Concrete Grove Series', as opposed to Trilogy as the publishers do; each book is almost self-contained, featuring its own separate characters. But in a very real sense this is a trilogy, and superbly structured. I waited until a few weeks before the publication of this final instalment before reading the first two: reading it as one 1100+ page novel was a mesmerising, immersive experience, with the seeds sown in the first two parts coming to fruition in the third's climax.

Set on a gritty, fictitious council estate known as the Concrete Grove, this is urban horror at its finest as the author explores poverty, violence and life on the lowest rung of the ladder, throughout which is woven, in subtle layers, supernatural events emanating from the Needle, a tower block at the centre of the estate's concentric, crop-circle like streets. There's a power there, a force that is trying to get through. And it's succeeding...

The Concrete Grove lies in the Northeast of England, a place that feels permanently shrouded in darkness, even when, as one character remarks, the sun shines hard. A joyless neighbourhood blighted by crime and a life on welfare. Grim and bleak are adjectives that easily spring to mind if I was to describe these books... but I'm wary of that, for they give the impression that the books are heavy going, turgid, something to be slogged through till the end. They're not. Indeed, I found them incredibly brisk reads, not least because of the momentum, the sense of purpose with which McMahon writes. The writer knows where he's going and he's going there at speed, with the reader hurtling along beside him.

5.0 out of 5 stars The End of the Grove 26 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Beyond Here Lies Nothing is the end of the Concrete Grove trilogy and it could not have had a better ending. I loved the previous two books but this one is, hands down, my favourite. The cover art is the best of the series and from the cover onwards, it only gets better and the threads spun throughout the previous books are brought together and woven into a dark, ensnaring web. It is in Beyond Here Lies Nothing that I would say a true sense of numinous awe comes through as the truth behind The Concrete Grove and its denizens, natural and otherwise, is finally explained. There were certain sections that reminded me of Ramsey Campbell's The Darkest Part of the Woods as the story reaches for the cosmic and the weird as much as the grotesque. Make no mistake, Gary McMahon does not pull his punches when it comes to the more visceral scenes here but these underscore the more disturbing aspects of the story rather than becoming excessive or exploitative. The warped state of one returning character has to be seen, or rather read, to be believed. Also, as ever, the author is not satisfied with neat and tidy endings. Here there is still ambiguity and mystery. Questions lead to more questions rather than answers. Much like in life. Dread piles upon dread, leaving you waiting for the next book in the series - then you realise that this is it, that beyond here lies nothing - and that's the way it should be. The Concrete Grove is a trilogy that leaves you reflecting, feeling and thinking in a way that only the best literature can do. I don't just recommend this book. I recommend all three. Go on, treat yourself.

Here concludes the Concrete Grove Trilogy.

Someone is leaving macabre scarecrows in the grove estate, each one has attached to it a photograph of the ‘Gone Away Girls,’ seemingly dead. Something is approaching, a door is opening.

Our protagonist is Marc Price a sometime journalist who is currently researching the Northumbrian Poltergeist for his first book. He made a good friend in local man Harry Rose who has been feeding him details of grove history, helping him with his poltergeist research.We also have Abby Hansen whose young daughter is one of four little girls who disappeared mysteriously from the grove estate years before, ‘The Gone Away Girls’ as coined by the media. Abby is a promiscuous and emotional wreck trying to deal with her tragic loss. The child’s father is Erik Best who made an appearance in book 2 of the trilogy as the organiser of bare knuckle illegal fights. In book three he is a stalker, a hard man, a raw and present menace, he is desperate to reunite with Abbey. He has his part to play in the coming proceedings, his own supernatural date with destiny. Finally there is the local detective DS Royle who has been obsessed for years with finding out the truth behind the disappearance of those four little girls and has his own broken home life to heal.

To sum up the story in short without spoilers;

As the book starts we learn Harry Rose is dead having succumbed to old age, later Marc learns that Harry has been keeping secrets. The sort of secrets that mean Marc Price is going to have to make a decision to answer a question that will ultimately alter the course of his life, and this question ultimately gives anyone who has followed the trilogy from the beginning a deeper understanding of books #1 and #2.
